Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yes I did some copying but when I did a makemap on [authinfo] it still won't authenticate.
And I still see [user name] in [authinfo.db].
Ya know I did not see any errors when I compiled, do those errors show up at the end? or do I have to watch the whizzing by of info to see if there was an error?
By end I mean the end of a given step.
Kodon & Siegex,
I did one step above that, I re-installed the whole OS.
Now I'm trying to compile [cyrus-sasl] but it's NOT creating "/var/state/saslauthd" or "/usr/local/lib/sasl2" after I install. I've tried Skubee's option by changing the compiling arguments to "/var/state" and "/usr/local/lib" still nothing after install.
Of-course I tried the original example letter for letter first.
Do you guys have any idea why or what's going on????????????????
I'm trying my third recompile and install now just to make quadruple sure every detail again.....
Let me know if you have any ideas, please.
Errors?!?!?!? If they appear at the end of compiling or the end of making, then NO.
If they appear during those processes I didn't see it, but I did not scroll back through every step either.
As far as /var/state/saslauthd and /usr/local/lib/sasl2 they never get created.
I've uninstalled, deleted everything and unpacked the tar.gz file re-compiled and installed about six times now with different variations and nothing is working.
and when you did
/usr/sbin/sendmail -d0.1 -bv root
you did or did not see STARTTLS and SASLv2?
what has me kinda wondering
is when i went through the how-to
(skipping the backup and restore part
cause i was doing a fresh install)
i received an error and had to do some searching
to determine how to continue
believe it was an m4 error
Okay we are making progress finally.
I am able to send from the server after everything.
But unable from outside the network.
I get the following error message from OE within WINXP.
The server does not support a SSL connection. Account: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Server: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '250 HELP', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): Yes, Server Error: 250, Error Number: 0x800CCC7D
NOTE: I was unable to start shadow, due, full or in part by the fact that there is no /var/state/saslauthd directory. [ or so I believe ].
Yes I did uncheck that box.
Then I get this message:
The message could not be sent because one of the recipients was rejected by the server. The rejected e-mail address was 'firstname.lastname@example.org'. Subject 'test', Account: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Server: 'rainland.homelinux.com', Protocol: SMTP, Server Response: '550 5.7.1 <email@example.com>... Relaying denied', Port: 25, Secure(SSL): No, Server Error: 550, Error Number: 0x800CCC79
I will try to mess with it some more and see.
Thank you to SiegeX and Kodon,
I thank you for your efforts, but I seem to not be getting the information I need.
I purchased today (9-19-04) "The sendmail cookbook" by "Craig Hunt" distributed by "O'Reilly".
i.e. one of the "BAT BOOKS" I when finances permit will buying the complete "Sendmail book" by the same author
At such time I will be in a position to clarify the implantation of sendmail in both a client and server application.
Which I will provide to viewers of this post and Linuxquestion.org.
